definitely eerie and scary, though not in the traditional sense

Film Comment Magazine

In a classic case of filmmakers prioritizing their own pitch over the actual goods, Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost put Schulman's toothy-grinned brother Nev front and center as he investigates his fishy long-distance Facebook crush.

Fascinating, if far-fetched film of a real life game of online Liar's Poker exposing the perils of Internet romance.

Catfish is a unique documentary - like Capturing The Friedmans, it starts as one thing and mutates into a completely different, terrifying animal halfway through.

It's gripping, heartfelt and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny, only let down by a directionless ending.

Catfish certainly feels real enough to leave you with a stunned feeling at its finale and a nagging suspicion that the world is an even stranger place than you imagined.

Whether its real or not is irrelevant. Catfish is an amazing, tense, charming, soulful, utterly surprising portrait about technology & psychology

I applaud the makers of Catfish for the way in which they've made and marketed their movie. They're selling it as something different... and that's a big reason why I liked it.

The true, almost nightmarish beauty of Catfish is the all too crystal clear mirror it holds up to its audience.

If Inception had you jokingly wonder what is real and what is fake, Catfish will have you frantically scrambling around for totems to spin just to double check the veracity of the existence of yourself and the people around you.

Starting like any amateur video of a family member, Catfish is so poorly shot we could be excused for thinking that it was made to look as amateur as possible to enhance its street cred as a 'real find'

It's a stunning dismantling of Facebook and the society of the spectacle (thanks, Debord) that goes along with it.

Catfish reveals in the most surprising of ways why a social network created by a lonely teenage introvert is, in a word, fishy.

If you begin with the premise that all films, docs and dramas, are constructs of one sort or another and it's the how and why that's important, you'll have fun pulling this apart.

The great thing about Catfish is the compassion it shows towards everyone involved. It tries to reach an understanding of the truth but without mocking or judging.

[A] generous and sensitive examination of both the psychology of deceit and the illusion of connectivity offered by social networking services such as Facebook.

Is it real? When a film's this good, that becomes secondary.

The film begs lots of questions about how, and when, it became clear any of this was worth documenting, but it certainly was.
